The PCA®3 portable combustion analyzer is available in 14 configurations and 14 European versions. According to the manufacturer, it is the industry’s first advanced portable combustion analyzer with a full-color graphic display for superior visibility and user-friendly interface and the most sensor configuration flexibility in its class. In addition to the included oxygen (O2) and carbon monoxide (CO) sensors, the analyzer can be ordered with CO (high), nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and sulfur dioxide (SO2) sensors, or the sensors can be added in the field without down time, using the B-Smart® pre-calibrated sensor options. It is designed for on-demand or semicontinuous sampling of light industrial, institutional, commercial, and residential furnaces, boilers, and appliances. It has sturdy metal gas and draft connectors and rugged construction. The lightweight handheld analyzer directly measures and displays flue gas O2, CO (hydrogen-compensated), stack temperature, draft, differential pressure, and combustion air temperature, and optionally measures and displays NO, NO2, and SO2. The PCA 3 simultaneously calculates and displays combustion efficiency (EFF), excess air (EA), carbon dioxide (CO2), NOx, and oxygen reference values. Additionally, the analyzer performs combustion calculations for 10 different fuels, plus the ability to load custom fuels.
